Washington, D.C. — On Saturday, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) celebrated and honored leaders in the fight for social justice at a jointly hosted event during this year’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference. As our rights and freedoms face an unprecedented tidal wave of threats, the awards brunch focused on the “Collective Joy and Resilience” of the reproductive and LGBTQ+ rights movements.
This year’s honorees included Leslie Jones, Entertainer of the Year, Imara Jones, Advocate of the Year, and Planned Parenthood’s Generation Action Chapter at Alabama A&M University and Erica McPheeters of Kentucky State University, HBCU Youth Champions. Planned Parenthood also recognized the Honorable Representative Marilyn Strickland (WA 10th District), recipient of the Congressional Champion of Reproductive Health.
Hundreds were in attendance at the sold-out event, underscoring the powerful coalition fighting for justice and equality across the country.
